This year has proven to be a tumultuous time, rife with political upheaval and public discord. Our city has seen protest after protest calling attention to President Trump's scattershot governmental style, from his so-called “Muslim ban” to his nonstop onslaught of anti-immigrant rhetoric. Los Angeles has been ground zero for the people to rise up, and L.A. Weekly has been along for the ride. Here are some of the best shots by our photojournalists this year.
